Famous Connections

I just found out that my horse was bred by the same people who bred Summer Bird. I'm a little shocked. I paid $500 for her. Anyone else have a horse with some famous relatives or connections?

My paint has the TB Man O' War in his bloodlines. It is way back but it is there.

There are a few famous stallions in my horse's pedigree. His sire was also a 1. Prize stallion, but not a very popular one (he has 60 offspring). I don't know anything about his mothers side other than her name.

Saro has some good stock, at least it's considered so in the Rocky Mountain horse world.
Kilburn's Chocolate Sundown and Nuncio are fairly well known

Hmmm... where to start!

Demi (Thoroughbred): Her sire is Kiri's Clown who won the Sword Dancer Stakes 95. Her grandsire is Foolish Pleasure. The grandsire on the dam's side is Red Ransom who's sire is Roberto. She's also got Damascus, What a Pleasure, Bold Ruler, Hail to Reason, Nearctic, Nashua, Sword Dancer, Turn-To, Never Bend (descendent is Never Bend Better, who is an amazing event sire as well), Tourbillon, and Nasrullah. Her most prominent bloodline is probably that of Roberto who is an excellent producer of eventers.

Overall she's got great bloodlines. Here's her full pedigree : Nancy Drew Thoroughbred

Uma:her grandsire is a full shire named Thorndown Door T Geronimo who was (I guess) pretty prominent in the Shire community. But that's all I know about her Shire lineage. Her grandsire on her dam's side (who was full TB) is Harry's Cary. She's got Nashua and Nasrullah back there as well as War Relic (by Man O'War who is by Fair Play) and Princequillo.

She is 3/4 TB 1/4 Shire aka an American Warmblood

Here's her full pedigree: Javah American Warmblood

Ginisee (Thoroughbred): She is sired by Quick Style who is by To The Quick. Her great grandsire is Raise a Native by Native Dancer. She's also got Cornish Prince and Princequillo as well as Bold Ruler, Sea Chimes, Nasrullah, and Nearco.

Interestingly enough, all of her sisters and brothers are named after wines and spirits. Ginisee is a brand of German beer and her brothers include Budwiser, Coors, and others. One qualified for a national showjumping title but I'm not sure in what country.

All of them are chestnut while Ginisee is the only dark bay/fading black :)

Here's her full pedigree: Ginisee Horse Pedigree

Diamond(TWH) has some famous sires a few generations back, including Ebony Masterpiece and Last Chance.
Way, way, way, WAY back(His great, great, great, great grandparts, lol) He has Roan Allen, Midnight Sun, Merry Boy...these guys are seven generations back though, so it doesn't count, LOL.
Still, isn't it fun to see names you know on the pedigree?
